Twain Harte “Snow” and “Ice”


Posted by Annie in Activities, Family Fun, Field Trip Idea on March 4, 2018

It appears that I haven’t posted for a complete year in Twain Harte Times.  For that I apologize, I’ve been spending most of my time on Facebook. That will not longer be the case.

The Fall is my favorite time of year, with Winter a close second.  I really hate Summer, I’m just not able to handle those hot temperatures any more and it gets hotter every year here in Twain Harte.  I watch the temperature religiously checking in probably 50 times a day.

I used to love the snow, I’d get up at 4 or 5 a.m. just to take pictures of the snow before anyone soiled it with footprints or tire tracks some days.  Oh, how I loved to traipse around in the snow. It was exhilarating.  Now, I just get angry and try not to go out in it at all.

Chick-fil-A Campaign


Posted by Annie in Field Trip Idea on February 15, 2009

If you have ever eaten at Chick-fil-A, you will crave it forever. The members of our family are huge Chick-fil-A fans and since the closest Chick-fil-A to Twain Harte is in Elk Grove, I’ve decided to start a campaign to beg the company to open a franchise in Sonora, Modesto or Merced.

I’ve written to the company asking them to consider my request and I’m asking you to do the same. If you never tried Chick-fil-A, do make a point to visit a restaurant near you; Chicken lovers will be delighted with their products. If you would like to see a Chick-fil-A closer to home, visit Chick-fil-A online and tell them so.

Come to think of it if they opened up a restaurant at Yosemite National Park, we would have twice the incentive to visit there more often. Perhaps, we should ask?
